Absolutely agree with that. Tackle was copybook and there's no way you can expect the player to control the ball carriers momentum from there. Players are going to start getting confused when the way they get taught all their lives is going to be carded. No way he could have adjusted mid air on that tackle, meaning, as tiger says, he needed to apply a softer approach to do so. 'Tackle hard....but perhaps not that hard'...soft.
Been that way for years and the players head was impacted forcing him to leave the field. Soft? Give over.

It was a clear yellow.

What exactly happened to Hogg? I couldn't see what happened even in the replays.

Brilliant move.

This game is getting interesting. Scotland are a class confident team but they certainly have to rethink things now.

Hogg knew he has a better chance of making the lions if he stayed off the pitch.

question though - was the tackle completed that the pen was given for? looked like he was still being held off the ground as neither knees were on the ground ...

One of his knees were on the ground as the ref indicated. It was a correct call.

I think another sort of head would be more applicable for your name, Tight.

Joseph is playing an absolute blinder. What has happened to the Scottish defence? They are getting ripped apart off the first phase.

Not speaking too soon but that might make it tough for Scotland.

I thought they might pass 30 themselves after last week, they still may, but I think England might score again to hold on.

This is a walk in the park so far. Got to feel for the Scots, theyve been blown away. England finally clicking for the first time this 6N.
